I, too, just started the HCG program this week, just yesterday in fact. I lost one pound each day so far, although my scale is not a very good one, so I will be weighing myself at the gym regularly instead from here-out. The administration is sublingual.
My favorite part about this, though having only been on it for only a whole day so far (three if you count he "loading" phase), is that it forces you to really step back and look at what you eat....and your eating patterns time-wise and craving-wise. I struggled a little last night feeling the need for "something else"...but satisfied it with some warm tea and stevia. I am noticing two interesting things since I started:
One, I am having a very, very difficult time falling asleep; it takes me an average of 1.5 hours until I actually fall asleep all three nights so far. Does this mean I should really consider taking potassium? LOL.
Two, I have noticed a sort of "mental clarity"...I've been able to focus on things much better, and I feel like my mind has been clearer than it has been in years...I don't know if that makes sense, or if it's a normal reaction. I'm certainly not complaining! ...But it's not a reaction I expected, or even considered...but there it is.
I'm glad Vicky started this forum, it's really nice to find a forum that is -up to date- on discussions for others who are doing this at the same time.
